The Commission on Justice in Wales has been set up by the First Minister to review the operation of the justice system in Wales.
The First Minister announced in September 2017 he was setting up a Commission on Justice in Wales to review the operation of the justice system in Wales and set a long term vision for its future.
The Commission, chaired by Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, began its work in December of considering what arrangements need to be put in place to ensure Wales has a justice system that is fit for purpose and for the new devolution settlement in the Wales Act 2017. It is scheduled to report in 2019.
The Commission is looking at criminal justice and policing; civil, commercial, family and administrative justice; access to justice; legal education and training; the legal professions and economy; and the legal jurisdiction. The Commission issued a call for evidence on 27 February and will be holding events across Wales to inform its work.beta.gov.wales/commission-justice-wales
